Digital transformation of healthcare is the only way to meet today’s patient needs. In order to enable the transition from analogue to digital healthcare, the Digital Health and Innovations Cluster Bulgaria (DHI Cluster Bulgaria) continues its expansion with 7 new companies to its ecosystem.
The aim is to benefit from our new and existing members’ expertise in order to provide solutions for the unique patients’ needs and to embrace their individual context. This is the way to facilitate the improvement of healthcare services covering certain medical needs and moreover the prediction of upcoming ones.
“Modern health systems realize the importance of technology and shared knowledge. A shift towards creating health ecosystems has started, leading to integration of value chain participants through common business models.”, Mira Ganova, DHI Cluster Bulgaria CEO commented.
She specifies that an ecosystem is sustainable when all participants collaborate at all levels with a clear and future-oriented vision for the digitalization of the sector. This brings more value to the healthcare sector through technology and creates the conditions for better, faster and customized solutions covering specific patients’ needs.
The seven new companies joining the DHI Cluster family are therefore distinguished by a high level of digitalization expertise and a willingness to share their formulas for success with other players in the market. The reason behind their membership is the common cause of creating a sustainable and efficient healthcare system based on data and technology while putting the patients’ needs at the centre of this system.
